This is a big scoop for Hub City Comic Con. The Lubbock convention has scored one of the actors from the original "Star Trek" television show.

Nichelle Nichols, who played the beloved character Uhura, will be in Lubbock for the event.

At this point it's unclear if she'll be on hand all three days, but this is still a big score for this event.

Also booked this year is David Prowse, the man who was in the Darth Vader suit in the original "Star Wars" trilogy, Judith Hoag, who was April O'Neil in the original live-action "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" movie and others.

Nichols was also part of this history-making moment on TV that we continue to build on today.
